Assessment of the academic background and the ability of applicants is the responsibility of the Department/Program concerned. Recommendations for acceptance of applicants are made by the Department/Program to the School of Graduate Studies, taking into consideration the availability of faculty, financial support, and facilities at that time.
Official letters of acceptance are sent only by the School of Graduate Studies, and are only valid for the academic year indicated in them. A successful applicant must reply at an early date, declining or accepting the offer. If circumstances prevent acceptance in the term offered, the Department/Program reserves the right to reconsider the acceptance. If the applicant wishes to commence study in an academic year subsequent to the one indicated, they must submit another application.
